Everyone wants to own the result; nobody wants to own the process.
The process is the hard part. It is where the work gets done and none of the credit is given. No one has ever stopped me in the middle of a project before any tangible results were visible and told me what a great job I am doing.
A guy I go to church with has an Idiom that I love.
No one wants to hear about the labor they just want to see the baby.
